I find myself going to 2-9-73 allot - unfortunately there is not an AUD available

Here are some good '73 AUDs - I forget who originally recommended them

6.22.73 (He's Gone thru Wharf...especially Phil's Jam)
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-06-22.aud.weiner.gdADT19.16889.sbeok.shnf

6/30/73 - the 'Jerry' AUD - http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-06-30.aud.weiner.100346.flac16
Note: Source Tape:
Reel dubbed in 1979 by Will Boswell from Jerry Garcia's personal collection.
Original recording made by the sound crew at the soundboard. It is assumed
that the 1979 dub came direct off of the master. This is the same master
recording that is heard on shnid=6019, but casts that lineage into question
as this transfer is a clear upgrade.

7.1.73 (Top 10 Playin' & the China>Rider ain't 1/2 bad either)
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-07-01.aud.lai.178.sbefail.shnf

7.27.73 (Spacy Jam into Wharf Rat)
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-07-27.aud.weiner.gdadt26.26363.sbeok.shnf

8.1.73 (funky TLEO, Dark Star medley)
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-08-01.aud.weiner.gdADT08.9145.sbeok.shnf

Many nice picks indeed but ya'll missed 8/1/73 Garcia's B-day from Roosevelt Stadium. mind numbing 2nd set...DS>El Paso>Eyes>Dew will leave you standing in a puddle of goo. 2/15, 11/11,3/16 and 3/19 are also nice.I think 6/10 is waaay overated.

...or growing up in the jersey suburbs, near GW bridge.
and, yep, and I was lucky enough to get to most of the nearby 1973 shows that year, and taped many of them:

3/15/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island
3/16/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island
3/19/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island

3/24/73 The Spectrum, Philly

6/9/73 RFK Stadium
6/10/73 RFK Stadium

7/27/73 Watkins Glen sound check
7/28/73 Watkins Glen

7/31/73 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City ...set 2 begins on Jer's b'day, after midnight
8/1/73 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City

9/7/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island
9/8/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island

9/20/73 The Spectrum, Philly
9/21/73 The Spectrum, Philly

my top 5 are from the outdoors shows I attended --

6/10 - best sound, top-10 all-time DS. great Eyes, Playin', Bird Song, HC Sunshine. intimate and modal jam at end.
6/9 - 2nd best sound, great Eyes, Playin', TLEO...
7/31 - 2nd set was the most exciting thrill I ever had. 15 or 20 thousand people and GD all trippin' together, and very excited!
8/1 - ditto, sort of...
7/27 - Watkins Glen sound check

Lucky enough to be at that one. Funny,strange goings on down front! Growing up in NYC back in those days was great for any DeadHead. Seems like they came east back then two sometimes three times a year. Nice!

Well there are obviously a few bean counters here, who delight in the quantitative analysis. Room enough here for them and the magniloquent folks too :)

02-15-1973, 05-26-1973, 06-22-1973, 12-02-1973 deserve some recognition...others include 06-10-1973, 03-31-1973, 04-02-1973, 09-15-1973, 11-17-1973, 11-20-1973...etc

you should just get a dedicated player for all of 73.
along with 1968 one of the greatest years for the band.

Here are 5 that have not been mentioned 3/22/73,3/28/73,6/26/73,10/30/73,and finally one I find very odd that no one has picked 12/6/73 containing a truly beautiful 40 minute Dark Star.

I know I'm naive sometimes, but why worry about it? If the archive is your fountain and the ipod is your cup you can come back for more refreshment when you've finished drinking what you've got. Make sense?

These are the ones I carry around, with my notes. I'm partial to the fall.


1973-05-20 Santa Barbara
Excellent sound quality and performances throughout. On many people's best of 1973 lists. See Dr. Flashback's review. Highlights: exquisite Playin' In The Band and from Truckin' -> the end is all superb.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-05-20.sbd.miller.86905.sbeok.flac16


1973-05-26 Kezar Stadium
San Francisco
Three sets, more than 4 hours of music. Some consider it the very best Dead recording at LMA for performance and sound quality. “One of the best, hands down.”
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-05-26.sbd.cribbs.17076.sbeok.shnf


1973-09-07 Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum
Location Uniondale, NY
This is a phenomenal performance that's slightly marred by occasional AUD patches (Truckin'). Still, it has superb, intricate jamming, carefully played up-beat versions of the American Beauty songs, and sensitive, evocative treatments of the thoughtful Workingman's and Wake songs. Ignore the blemishes and enjoy the quintessential virtuosity.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-09-07.sbd.cotsman.19893.sbeok.shnf


1973-06-10 RFK w/ Allman Bros
A classic show, with Dicky Betts & Co. on stage in set three. Say no more.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-06-10.sbd.miller.89640.sbeok.flac16


1973-11-11 Winterland
One of the best ever, and the sound quality is superb. The first set has lovely mellow versions of the slow tunes, with nice harmonies by Donna. The pace and energy pick up at China > Rider. Everything from Weather Report Suite through the encores shows the band at their peak, including perhaps my favorite Dark Star (one of Jim Powell's top five) and Eyes -- as nice an hour and a half of Dead as I've heard.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-11-11.sbd.rolfe-miller.83318.sbeok.flac16


1973-11-17 Pauley Pavilion
Sound quality is excellent and performances lovely. "The Dead at their absolute best," Dr. Flashback says of the second set. This is true, the Playing > UJB > Dew > UJB > Playing>Stella is simply stupendous. First set's nice, too.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-11-17.sbd.gardner.4749.sbeok.shnf


1973-12-01 Boston Music Hall
Sound quality is quite fine. Performances are peak Dead -- tight, energetic, fun, and risky. The Playin'>UJB>Playin' is relaxed and upbeat; Jerry just sparkles. From there to the end is liquid ecstasy as one inspired jammy song follows another; a marvelous, long, jazzy Not Fade Away, for example. Many reviewers prefer the next night (on DP14) for its amazing Playin' jams but they're a bit too chaotic for my taste; this is also an extraordinary show. Lots of entertaining banter in the second set. Donna was not on stage, getting close to giving birth.
